...maybe I should change my name to broken record...

anyway I am looking to get things to go with a dress, navy blue spots on cream.

I have very boring blue shoes to go with the dress and now I would like some exciting brightly coloured accessories... (warning I am not a matchy l.k bennet style person).

It is for a very relaxed wedding, all day event, I will have children with me.

I would like something for my hair, thinking of a fascinator - but not sure, I have long,dark brown hair, very straight, with a touch of frizz (don't own ghd type things)

I have looked at a bag or two and I will post links to things I am considering...

I really like a patterned bag, but is that very wrong?

ooh and I would like some jewellery/bracelets too.

I woudl not match bags and shoes but not have more pattern

just to show you how off the beaten track non-matchy I am... I am thinking of getting this belt to wear empire line, but to make it work I was thinking this bag

... or I really like this tapestry bag and just thought I could get away with it in a non-matching way? but probably wouldn't get the belt.

this is quite eye catching too... not sure it is just a bit too bling...? grin

I am going to order the belt and bag and see how it goes... I will maybe post a pic when they arrive with me wearing the whole ensemble.

Then you can see the dress Simples.

just spotted this but maybe that will be too much blue? I think another colour is better, non?
